million is India’s fifth largest and fastest growing.

relations agency was working overtime. Its many local parks and
abundant flora have earned it the name “The Garden City”. As India’s
centre for software production and outsourcing, Bangalore also
qualifies as “India’s Silicon Valley”. Its rich array of produce,
including grapes, mangoes, and guavas, has tagged Bangalore as “Fruit
Market of the South.” Bangalore is also known as the “Stone City” for
its abundant granite deposits.

array of choice, including ultramodern allopathy, Ayurveda, holistic
